We love authors, and hate them at the same time. They can enchant us, make us laugh, help us escape, and discover new worlds we never knew existed. However, they don’t always do what we expect, or what we hope, and it can drive readers a little nuts. Why do authors mismatch characters who are […]
My posts are divided up into three categories, posts related to books (usually mine), posts about giveaways, contests, or special offers, and posts about my writing progress and the writing process in general.

What I’ve Learned About Publishing This Year
Today marks the one-year anniversary of the publication of my first book. That being the case, I wanted to take a look back and evaluate everything I’ve learned in the past year about publishing, because it’s a LOT. I Never Set Out to Be a Publisher With Realistically Yours, a book I wrote during the […]
The Overall Response? I’m Optimistic
With both of the book giveaways over, I wanted to take a moment to recap the initial response to Quiet on the Set. Call it vanity, pride, or just obsessive statisticianing (it’s a word–I Googled it and other people say it, too), but I’m really pleased with everyone’s responses to the book! The Stats 249+ […]
It’s Official: I’m Going on Tour
Starting May 27th, I’ll be heading out on the information superhighway to promote Quiet on the Set! I’m super-excited, and a little nervous, but I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. The stops haven’t been announced yet, but I’m looking forward to meeting some new bloggers and readers! I’ve signed up to […]
Rule #1 on How To Be A Writer: You Gotta Love It
When I first started writing, becoming a rich and famous published author was a pipe dream. I didn’t write because I thought I would ever achieve that. I wrote because I enjoyed it – because I love telling stories, and writing is my favorite way to do it. Since I got into self-publishing, that enjoyment […]
VICTORY! Quiet on the Set Is Now for Sale!
Phew! What a nightmarish week it’s been! Instead of complaining first, I’ll start you off with a joke: what do you call a place where it’s blizzarding and snowing sideways one week, and sunny and 70 degrees the next? COLORADO! Holee shit – I drove home in the stupid blizzard last week (after a lovely […]
I Did Something Bad…
I’ve been feeling like I have some pent-up creative energy after editing for so long. So, last night, I snuck in a little writing… and it was AWESOME. I feel a little guilty considering I still have a lot to do before my new book comes out, but just that little bit of writing and […]
Giveaway: Realistically Yours Is Free for Kindle!
Romance. Girl talk. Writing. Love. Loss. Maturity. Vegas. Hockey. These are just a few of the topics that come into play in my first published novel, Realistically Yours. It is a new adult (NA) contemporary chick lit/romance story and it covers a lot of ground, from clinical anxiety to freelance work in a modern economy, […]
Good News and Bad News
Good news: I’m about a day or two away from ordering the first proof copy of Quiet on the Set! Bad news: I’m pushing the release date back to March 28th. It has been a busy couple of weeks! I’ve been scrambling trying to finish my editing on the book and I finally feel really […]
